Jose Reyes has a Grade 1 intercostal strain and has been sent to the hospital to be examined, Terry Collins said after the Mets' doubleheader on Tuesday. According to Collins, Reyes suffered the injury in Game 1 of the doubleheader while swinging and is expected to be out for a couple of days. (Source: SNY)

Fantasy Impact: Reyes holds minimal fantasy value in shallow fantasy formats. During his absence, Wilmer Flores should see an uptick in well-deserved playing time. Owners in deeper NL-only leagues and DFS tournament games may wish to take a flier on Flores who has been red hot in July.

Jose Reyes with two home runs

Sun, Jul 10th 8:00pm EDT
By Chris Zolli

Jose Reyes finished 2-for-4 with two solo home runs for the Mets against the Nationals. He is 4-for-20 since returning to baseball on July 5. Reyes has a 1.016 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes has four hits since returning to the Mets and three of those hits have been home runs. The Mets are looking for a spark at the top of the lineup and their former star may be just that. Fantasy owners would be wise to pick up Reyes, who also has 15-20 stolen base potential for the second half.

Jose Reyes homers in win

Jose Reyes hit his first home run of the season in Thursday's win over the Nationals. He finished 1-for-5 with the solo shot and a walk. He was also caught stealing.

Fantasy Impact: It was good to see the pop from Reyes continue, as he now has three extra-base hits in his last two games. It was also nice to see him again active on the base paths, as he has certainly proven valuable in that aspect of the game. It will be interesting to see how he settles into his new role with the Mets, but he's certainly worth considering for fantasy purposes.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes was signed by New York following his release from the Rockies. It seems like he could see consistent playing time atop the team's order, despite his long layoff and lackluster showing during his brief stint in the minors this season. He could provide value considering his power/speed combo and the fact that he could be hitting atop the lineup.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes won't officially become a free agent until 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, but Mets manager Terry Collins was already talking Friday about how the team plans to use him. Reyes may be worth the risk for fantasy owners, although the Mets offense has been scuffling of late. Reyes could be the boost the Mets need to get rolling again.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes will be a free agent in 48 hours if he doesn't get claimed by another club. The four-time All-Star was suspended through May 31 and missed all of Spring Training due to a domestic violence charge against him stemming from an incident with his wife last October in Hawaii. He is currently owed $39 million from the $106 million, six-year deal he signed with the Marlins before the 2012 season.

Jose Reyes trade unlikely

Most around baseball reportedly don't feel that the Rockies will be able to find a trade parter for SS Jose Reyes. (Source: New York Post)

Fantasy Impact: The clock is ticking, as the Rockies have until Saturday to trade Reyes. Considering the expectation is that they will then release the veteran, their chances of getting much, if anything, in return are not very likely. It will be interesting to see where Reyes stands, but given the lack of interest he may not be looking at a regular role initially, if he's in the majors at all this season.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should pay attention to this situation closely as a move to the New York Mets sounds possible.

 

The Colorado Rockies announced today that SS Jose Reyes was reinstated from the restricted list and subsequently designated for assignment.

Fantasy Impact: The move takes Reyes off the 40-man roster in Colorado and will subject him to waivers. There are plenty of teams in MLB with deep pockets who may be willing to take on Jose Reyes' salary and off-field issues, and his suspension is now up. The Angels, Mets, and some other teams may be in line to acquire the 33-year old shortstop.

Fantasy Impact: Considering the emergence of Trevor Story, there's a very real chance that Reyes could be preparing for a team other than the Rockies. There have been rumors that he could be traded at some point, and this would be more likely now that considering teams know how long he'll be suspended. His value would be determined on where he lands and what type of playing time he would receive.

 

Word on Jose Reyes' official suspension is expected this week. While nothing has been publically announced, Jon Heyman reports that the ban will be at least 60 games. (Source: Jon Heyman on Facebook)

Fantasy Impact: There is an expectation it could be 80 games. Whatever the case, Reyes won't have fantasy value until later in the season, and it's unclear what his role will be when he's eligible to return considering Trevor Story's impressive start to the season.

Major League Baseball is expected to unleash a suspension on Colorado Rockies SS Jose Reyes this week.

Fantasy Impact: This was expected after rumors surfaced weeks ago of the pending dismissal. Despite the dropped charge, MLB could still decide to hand down a suspension to Reyes. Considering the murky future and Trevor Story's historic start, Reyes' return to the majors in 2016 is unclear.

Fantasy Impact: As such, he will not be reporting to Spring Training with his teammates on Wednesday. On Oct. 31, Reyes was arrested after being accused of grabbing his wife's throat and pushing her into a sliding glass door in the midst of an argument. He pleaded not guilty. Regardless, the 32-year-old four-time All-Star won't be able to play anytime soon.

 

Jose Reyes had an excellent night on Friday by going 2-for-5 with two RBI, a run scored, and a stolen base.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes struggled when he first joined the Rockies but he settled in nicely to finish the season. He is sporting a .277 batting average with 24 steals and 25 doubles. If Reyes remains in Colorado for 2016, he should be a top pick at short stop in fantasy circles.

Reyes has picked it up over his last seven games; batting .333 with a home run, six RBI, six runs, and two stolen bases. He was struggling to find his groove for awhile in Colorado but he seems to be settling in nicely.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes has struggled since joining the Colorado Rockies but he was able to get something going tonight. He is now batting .278 and picked up his 43rd RBI and 20th stolen base of the season. Reyes still deserves to remain in fantasy lineups as he is always a threat to collect a couple hits and steal a bag or two.

Jose Reyes squared off against Jordan Zimmerman on Tuesday and had one heck of a game. He went 4-for-5 with a double, home run, one RBI, and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes seems to be getting comfortable with his new team as over his last seven games he is batting .345. Hitting in Coors Field should be a great thing for Reyes moving forward and it is encouraging to see him getting over his struggles when he first joined Colorado.

By Steven Sullivan

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Jose Reyes has cleared waivers. This makes him available to be traded at anytime to a potential contender. (Source: CBS Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Reyes has only been with the Rockies since July, coming over from the Toronto Blue Jays in a blockbuster trade that involved Troy Tulowitzki. If Reyes is traded to a contender, it could potentially spark a fire in the aging short stop, making him a solid starter.

Jose Reyes made his debut for the Rockies today and batted second in the order. He went 1-for-3 with a steal and a walk. He was also caught stealing once.

Fantasy Impact: It was a so-so debut for Reyes. He reached twice and stole a base but was also caught stealing. The Rockies plan to keep Reyes for the rest of the season; hoping Coors Field can help drive up his trade price in the Winter. Reyes remains a strong fantasy option in all leagues.

Jose Reyes continued his hitting streak Sunday, going 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't Reyes three hits that will be remembered about this game, it was the two costly fielding errors he made that lead to runs for the Royals. Reyes now has 10 errors on the season, and has been scrutinized by media and fans throughout the season. With the All-Star break beginning, he will have some time to clear his head and try to get back on track when play resumes.

Jose Reyes had a nice afternoon in Kansas City, going 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and a run scored.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes has been a model of consistency when it comes to the hits, as he is sporting a .277 average out of the leadoff spot, however his OBP has been something of a concern as it sits at just .308. You would expect more out of a leadoff hitter, as his main goal is to get on base and utilize his speed, however with just 12 walks in 58 games, he's showing his aggressive nature.

Jose Reyes exploded for four hits Wednesday afternoon, as the Blue Jays cruised to an 11-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox. For the day, Reyes was 4-for-5 with four runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes now has back-to-back multi-hit games as the calendar rolls into July. Over the last three seasons, July has been Reyes most productive month slashing .310/.358/.466 with 11 home runs, 32 RBI, and 53 runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes has struggled over the last 15 games, slashing a disappointing .194/.242/.339 with two home runs, six RBI, and eight runs scored. It shouldn't be long before Reyes turns it around and continues to be the elite fantasy shortstop owners expect him to be.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes continued his productive month, hitting .287 with 3 home runs, 13 RBI, and 14 runs scored so far during the month of June. He continues to be an elite shortstop, especially while hitting at the top of baseballs most productive lineups.

In his last four games, Reyes is 6-for-18, with four runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes continues to help you in BA while scoring runs. Now if only he would go back to stealing bases as it has been awhile since his last one. He still should be owned in most leagues.

 

Jose Reyes had a tough game Monday where he went 0-for-5 in the 4-3 loss.

Fantasy Impact: He should be owned in most leagues and started in many. Reyes had been playing well. He was scoring runs often and getting hits regularly as his season average was hovering around .300 in the past few games. The sign for concern is that he is not running much lately, as he has gone seven games without a successful steal.

There has been much criticism over Reyes defensive play lately, however it's his offensive numbers that fantasy owners care about.

Jose Reyes drives in two in win

Thu, Jun 4th 12:19am EDT
By Marc Walton

Jose Reyes put together a productive night at the plate Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with a run, and two RBI in their 8-0 shutout of the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes is hitting a solid .284 for the season, however his OBP is just a dismal .299. With just 25 games under his belt this year, some of that can be attributed to a slow start, however as a leadoff hitter a higher on base is expected. If his last 7 games, a .364 average with a .382 OBP, are evidence of him turning it around, then he should return to elite status.

Shortstop Jose Reyes made his return to the Blue Jays line up after nearly a month. The switch-hitter hadn't seen big league action since April 27th but contributed immediately with a double and a run scored, going one-for-four on the night.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes had suffered a rib injury which prevented him from swinging from the left side of the plate. His return will still see him playing every day atop the Jays order.

Jose Reyes has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a rib injury.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes attempted to play through a fracture in his left rib cage, however it seems the pain has become too much and the Jays have decided to place him on the DL. At this time it is unknown how long Reyes will be out for. Ryan Goins will serve as his replacement while he's out.

Jose Reyes went 1-for-4 Wednesday with two strikeouts and a run scored in their 4-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Impact: Jose Reyes is still limited to hitting from the right side of the plate, as he continues to recover from a rib injury he suffered earlier in the season. Reyes continues to show signs that he isn't fully healed as he seemed to aggravate the injury turning a double play earlier in the game. Reyes limped off the field, however he stayed in the game. It wouldn't surprise me if the Jays elected to sit him a few games, or perhaps put him on the 15 day DL. However, with Jose Bautista possibly going on the DL, and Dioner Navarro nursing a hamstring, the Jays may keep Reyes on the field. Keep an eye out for any changes to his status.

Jose Reyes made his return to the lineup Tuesday night against the Baltimore Orioles, going 0-for-4 with two RBIs, a stolen base, and a run scored in the Jays 13-6 win

Fantasy Impact: Jose was limited to hitting from the right side as expected. He didn't record a hit in the game, however he still drove in two runs, and stole a base. The ribs didn't seem to bother him too much during the game, which is a good sign for the oft injured shortstop. We're hopeful that this won't be an injury that lingers throughout the season, and Reyes can return to hitting from both sides of the plate.

Jose Reyes left Thursday's game in the first inning with a rib/oblique injury.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes first felt the pain in Baltimore after swinging at a pitch and feeling a tweak in his left rib cage area. He has had dealings with an oblique injury stemming back to his days with the Marlins, so he is no stranger to the injury. Depending on how well he responds to treatment, Reyes could be out for a few days, or an extended period. Owners should have a plan in place incase Reyes hits the DL.

Fantasy Impact: Jose Reyes has been battling a sore oblique early this season. Reyes came back to the dugout after grounding out in the first inning, sat down and slammed his helmet in frustration before heading down the tunnel. There is no word yet on whether Reyes will head to the DL, however I would expect him to miss a few games. Be prepared to have a replacement should Reyes need a DL stint.

Jose Reyes went 1-for-3 Wednesday with an RBI.

Fantasy Impact: It was somewhat of a quiet night for Reyes in an otherwise offensive explosion for the Jays. He did however manage to collect a hit and drive in a run during their 12-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. The runs will start coming in bunches once the offense finds some consistency. He remains a top five shortstop in all leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes increased his average to .417 on the season with his three hit day, and although his offensive abilities have never been a question, it's his health that has put doubt into fantasy owners. Reyes has had a couple scares early this season, however he has remained healthy which has paid dividends to those who those who took a chance on the 31-year-old shortstop. The average will obviously come down, however expect much of the same from Reyes this season.

Jose Reyes was 2-for-4 with an RBI in the Blue Jays victory Thursday night. Reyes' RBI single in the second inning plated the Jays fourth run.

Fantasy Impact: Jose Reyes is off to a respectable start to the season as he is 3-for-12 with an RBI and a run scored over three games. Reyes should provide owners plenty of run scoring opportunities in front of Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson. He is one of the better shortstops in the game and should be used in all formats and is a good option in daily leagues as well.

Jose Reyes narrowly avoided a trip to the DL Monday as Stephen Drew's foot clipped Reyes in the knee as he was rounding first base.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes was limping slightly as he pulled into second base which prompted an immediate visit from Jays trainer George Pulis. However, after a brief discussion they decided to leave him in the game. Whenever Jose Reyes begins limping, fantasy owners begin cringing. Reyes showed no signs of lingering effects as he scored on a Russell Martin single to right field. He finished the day 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored.

Jose Reyes ends Spring Training going 1-for-3 with an RBI against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: The good news for Reyes owners is he finished the spring healthy, the bad news is this is a player that has eclipsed 150 games played once in the last six seasons. Drafting Reyes is always high-risk/high-reward, however when he does give you a healthy season, the returns are a top five fantasy shortstop. Reyes will once again hit at the top of a powerful Blue Jays lineup, so he will provide top value in runs scored, as well as stolen base numbers in the 30's. With a career .291 average, Reyes is a strong, albeit risky, three-category fantasy shortstop.

Jose Reyes continues torrid spring

Wed, Mar 18th 12:14am EDT
By Marc Walton

Jose Reyes continued his hot spring Tuesday night going 2-3 with a triple and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: When healthy, Jose Reyes' skills are undeniable as he is a top-five shortstop in any format. Despite missing the first two weeks of 2014 due to a hamstring injury, Reyes still finished as the second most valuable shortstop in standard mixed-league formats. At 31 years old, Reyes is still a strong three category producer, and a top 50 player. Draft with confidence, but be prepared to have a contingency plan incase of injury.
